Past Local Support

Serious Coffee is always pleased to be given an opportunity to support local, grassroots community events and initiatives. Our criteria for support is very simple. If your organization and the focus of your initiative is on Vancouver Island and intended for your local community, we want to know about it. Below are just some of the events and initiatives that we have been a part of over the years. 

If you would like to receive support or use our fundraising package, complete one of the forms offered under Community Support.


Since 2006 we have been partnering with Camosun College Foundation by donating a $500 bursary to be given to a worthy student in need of financial support. Camosun selects the recipient because they know who is best suited to receive the bursary. We are proud to give back to those who are working hard to better themselves and our communities.
